FDA: Several pet foods contaminated with Salmonella

16 February 2018

Recalls were issued by 4 pet food companies after the FDA issued reports about salmonella contamination leading to pets becoming ill or dying.

"Pets with salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting", the FDA said.

Following in the footsteps of 2 other pet food manufacturers, Redbarn Pet Products has voluntarily recalled its 7-inch Bully Stick 3-packs due to possible Salmonella contamination. Raw food products from these brands were found to test positive for salmonella and/or Listeria monocytogenes.

"While dogs' and cats' digestive systems are created to be able to process pathogens, such as salmonella, with no impact on them, at Darwin's, we take this situation very seriously", the company said on its website.

In addition, lab analysis of closed packages of Darwin's pet food obtained by FDA from Judy on January 24 found Salmonella in the product. Very young children may also be exposed by crawling on or otherwise touching contaminated surfaces and put their hands or other objects in their mouth (without handwashing), or have oral contact with an animal that has consumed contaminated pet food, or with that animal's feces.
